Jamaica Horseback Riding Tours Growing In Popularity

Horseback riding tours are proving to be a popular way of experiencing the great outdoors of Jamaica. So once you have enjoyed the facilities offered by the villas and cottages in Silver Sands Jamaica, you can consider exploring the famed north coast of the island on horseback. There are many companies that offer horseback tours and the three really famous ones include Chukka Adventures, Braco Stables and Hooves.

Chukka Adventures: Located in the quaint fishing village of Sandy Bay in Montego Bay, Jamaica, Chukka Horseback Ride N’ Swim offers you an experience of a lifetime. Depending on the level of experience, you can choose between thoroughbred horses and quarter horses, each flanked with their own caretakers. The horseback tour not only takes you on a trip through the coasts and beaches but also through the cool turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea.

You don’t have to be an experienced rider to enjoy the tour. As a new rider, you will be given a brief orientation before mounting a horse and the guides will always accompany you to ensure nothing untoward takes place. The guides also provide an exciting commentary as they take you through the beautiful countryside. The ride also includes galloping along a cliff from where you can enjoy the panoramic views of the Jamaican coastline. However, what is more enthralling is the final part of the ride when the horse gallops right into the waters of the Caribbean.

Braco Stables: Braco Stables is another popular company offering horseback riding tours into the heartland of Braco Estate. This magnificently restored 18th Century Country Home is spread across 2000 acres of luxuriant terrain. The tour takes you past rugged hillside trails that offer you beautiful views of the north coast. As in the case of Chukka Caribbean, the horse will ride into the sea at Braco beach. The horses are suitable for both beginners and experts. The tour is for two hours and includes complimentary refreshments.

Hooves: Hooves is another company that offers numerous horseback riding activities that are both safe and fun for the entire family. You can enjoy a beach ride that takes you through the Seville Great House Museum and the wooded areas that unfold the history of the Taino Indian hunting grounds. As with the other tours, the final part of the ride takes you through the water. Refreshments are also included in the tour. You can opt for a honeymoon ride as also a beach ride.

If you wish to take a horseback riding tour, you can inform the staff of Silver Sands Jamaica and they will help arrange the tour and transfers for your convenience. If you are traveling with kids, we can also arrange for childcare facilities while you go and enjoy a tour of a lifetime.
